Ok, I Have around 90 bucks to spend on a loader. i have only used a proto primo loader before on my mech spyder, but recently i upgraded to a g4 and i was wondering what the best loader would be for me, i don't use very high end paint, (40 or so bucks a case). I was looking at used rotors , and i hope that is a good choice, but i wanted to know if that was the right path or should i look at another hopper. Thank you.

A used rotor, z2, or a spire if you can find one. If you don't want to spend that much then a used halo would be nice too

Just get an Invert Too. It will work just as good as any modern "superloader".

My only issue with halos and invert loaders is that I have seen them break and heard very bad things about them. Plus I want a loader that I can use for a very long time

The Reloader B(Now called the Invert Too) Was the pretty much the best loader you could buy for a very long time. If you can find a used Halo or Realder B I'd do it, they're cheap, reliable and fast.

Without a doubt, try to find a used Rotor or Spire. I've seen Z2's in action and their owners seem to love them. Just have no experience with them myself. Bought my son a Spyder Fasta (9V) for Christmas and when I tested it, I saw no issues with the loader. Did have to sand down the neck a bit, but no functionality issues.

Sure they break if you dive alot, slide alot, and generally smack your marker against hard things to get it to jar(shake, bounce, ect.) really bad.

I say either a Z2 or a Rotor used. You'll get to eventually hate disassembling the Halo type loaders. I know I did until my z2 came in.
